Featuring Finland is an online travel guide to Finland. On this website you may find practical information about travelling to Finland, travel guides for different regions of Finland, and feature articles about the most exciting experiences in Finland.

Featuring Finland was launched in 2021 by two experienced travel journalists, Mr. Ville Palonen and Mr. Antti Helin. Both of us have been working as travel writers and photographers for almost 20 years, contributing for leading Finnish magazines, newspapers and guidebook publishers. In 2013 we founded a Finnish online travel media Kerran elämässä (Once in a Lifetime), which has about 150 000 monthly visitors.

Our company, Paradise Reporters Oy (FI26662635), received FUNDING FOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT IN DISRUPTIVE CIRCUMSTANCES from Business Finland in 2020. This funding was used for creating Featuring Finland.

Ville Palonen (born 1976) is a freelance photographer and travel writer who loves mountains, wildlife and road trips. He has visited 80 countries and travelled in adventurous destinations like Amazon, Himalaya and Borneo. In Finland Ville spends his time photographing, hiking, fishing, hunting and mushrooming. Ville's favourite destinations in Finland are treeless fells of Lapland and wild parts of East Finland.
Antti Helin (born 1976) is a Finnish freelance writer and photographer who has travelled and lived in Southeast Asia for the past decade. Currently Antti is based in Vientiane, Laos. Every time Antti is visiting Finland he can see his native country through the eyes of an tourist – definitely an advantage when it comes to recommending the best places to visit in Finland! Antti is an expert with cultural and family attractions.
